The Boston Scientific Foundation, Inc. is at work in clinics, schools and neighborhoods across the United States, helping to expand access to quality health care and educational opportunities for underserved populations.

The Boston Scientific Foundation is proud to support the Family Van, a program of Harvard Medical School providing free preventative health services, health education, and referrals to individuals in underserved neighborhoods across Boston. 

Since 2002, we have donated more than $32 million dollars to support innovative community organizations that are making a difference in the health and education for people of all ages. Our impact has been both immediate and long-lasting, as we aim for our support to help bring about systematic change.


Our health-related grants aim to improve the health of those with significant unmet needs by enhancing access and quality of care, and supporting disease prevention and awareness efforts. The Foundation has a particular interest in proposals that would fund diagnostic, prevention and treatment services for Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs). All submissions must address the needs of underserved populations in the geographies listed in Eligibility.
